** para espanol ** JUNIPER HOMECARE is pleased to offer the ADULT FAMILY CAREGIVING to your family. When it comes to elder-care and age or disability-related services, the best caregiver is family. Now a relative or close friend can devote time, care, and service to an elderly consumer in their own home! Following a preliminary evaluation and qualification, Juniper Homecare will provide training and orientation, support, professional assistance, and even nutritional planning, meal preparation guidance and adult day-care services as needed.
Adult Family Living (AFL): Do you or someone you know currently live with someone who may have issues with mobility, transportation, bathing, eating and more? Are you their primary caretaker? If so, you may qualify for compensation as a result of the tireless, committed care you already provide. For more information, download our brochure.
